Glad to hear it! This sort of thing is the norm on ARM based SoCs. I
rarely ever see the HPD pin actually connected to the GPU/DPU hardware.
It almost always goes through some other chip and then software has to
deal with it by looking at the gpio or external hardware block, etc.

Ok, thanks for the background.

I see. At least there's an escape hatch.

Yep. For DT we already have a graph binding to show the output of the
display hardware (DPU). Right now it's not connected to anything though.

I'm currently thinking that a clean solution is to connect that graph
endpoint to some mux node and then have the mux node connect to each
type-c node. Then a driver that registers the mux and type-c connectors
can generate a drm_bridge instance (or instances) and drm can chain them
all together by walking the graph and connecting the DPU to the mux
bridge and then each type-c connector's bridge. I don't know how a mux
would work in the drm bridge design, so either that becomes a first
class type of operation or we register two bridges in the mux driver and
mux in the backend.

This feels similar to how we handle DSI-to-eDP bridges, except that the
end of the bridge chain is a type-c connector that could have MST to
deal with. I'm not super familiar with MST but maybe MST could also
become bridge aware and then we wouldn't have to do anything special.
I'll cross that bridge when I come to it.

I image the DPU would search the graph for a panel and then if there
isn't a panel downstream I think it would make one up, or do nothing?
I'm not very sure about this part either.

Anyway, I'm going to try to prototype out some code to do this unless
someone wants to say it's a terrible idea. Let me know.

Agreed. I suppose making a panel in the connector is the wrong
direction, but making a bridge there should be OK.
